This summary is meant to provide a general overview of the benefits offered to all regular full-time and ten-month employees of Medaille College.

Medical and Dental Insurance

All full-time employees have the option of joining the medical and dental plan offered by the College. Currently, participating employees are provided either individual or family medical benefit insurance coverage. The College currently pays a portion of the premium and the employee pays the remaining portion. Included in the medical package are prescription and dental coverage.

Medical coverage is offered through Blue Cross Blue Shield. Dental coverage is offered through Lincoln Life and Annuity Company of New York.


Flexible Spending Plan

This plan allows a full-time employee to have amounts withheld from their paychecks and paid into "spending accounts." The contributions set aside into these accounts are tax-free and can be used to reimburse the employee for qualifying expenses. 


Supplemental Insurance

Supplemental insurance (cancer, personal sickness, and/or accident) is a voluntary benefit offered to all regular full-time and ten-month employees.


Group Life Insurance

Group life insurance (with an accidental death and dismemberment clause) is fully paid by the College for all full-time employees. The amount of insurance is equal to twice the employee’s annual compensation. The maximum value of the benefit is $200,000. 


Long Term Disability

After three (3) months of continuous service, regular full-time employees and ten-month employees are provided long-term disability insurance benefits at no cost to the employee. 


Retirement Plans

To assist employees in providing for their retirement years, the College sponsors a 403(b) retirement plan.

Plan participation is optional for employees. All regular full-time employees and ten-month employees are eligible to participate immediately. After one (1) year of service, participants are eligible to receive a matching contribution from the College in an amount, if any, determined by the College on an annual basis.

Tuition Exchange Programs

Medaille College participates in three Tuition Exchange Programs that allow eligible employees and their dependents to participate in tuition remission. These programs are as follows:

  • The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC)
  • The Tuition Exchange
  • Commission on Independent College and Universities (CICU): For more information and a list of schools participating in the CICU Tuition Exchange, contact the Financial Aid Office.
    These programs can be utilized by dependents of full-time employees as qualified under the Federal Financial Aid Regulations, spouses of full-time employees and employees themselves.

All recipients must apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available in the Financial Aid Office.

Acceptance into the program is at the discretion of the participating college. Each college within the network agrees to import a limited number of students per academic year. Therefore, it is advisable to apply early. One program may have more stringent criteria than the other, and limitations may be warranted.***

To determine if you are a qualifying member and have met your criteria you should contact the Human Resources Office.

You may obtain a current list of all participating colleges and universities from the Financial Aid Office.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
